Women make up half of the world's population, and yet history books often consign them to the sidelines. They are dismissed as merely the wives of powerful men; babymakers and nothing more. Yet women have been the driving force behind history for millennia, from female Pharoahs, warrior princesses and pirates, to the revolutionaries who sought to topple the male-dominated political systems of their day. From host of the popular 'Queens of England Podcast', The Other Half tells the forgotten and ignored stories of the most powerful and influential women in history.

So interesting

A worthy follow up to the Queens of England - Thanks!

Undoubtably this will be outstanding.

Based on James’ previous podcast I have no doubt that The Other Half will be well researched, considered, and will bring an original and insightful perspective to historical periods that we all think we’re already familiar with.
